The Best Superyacht Sundecks For Entertaining Guests

Marina Nazario | May 28, 2021



Enjoy these spacious sundecks onboard yachts for sale or charter.

What’s the best part of a yacht? The sundeck. This may be our (popular) opinion but let’s be real — sipping cocktails in a Jacuzzi on top of a yacht with 360-degree ocean views is the good life. 

Not that we need to convince you, but the sundeck offers the best ocean views, luxury amenities, and comfortable space for entertaining guests. For some owners, the flybridge sundeck is the perfect spot to host private parties, for others, it’s a convenient place to add a treadmill or store jet skis. 

Whether it’s fitted with a wet bar, barbeque grill, dining table, hot tub, pool, sun pads, sauna, or dog park (got ya on that one) — we found 5 superyachts with the best sundecks. Welcome to the good life.


MIZU | 174 Oceanfast 2004

Have you ever played basketball while underway on a 174-foot yacht? It’s exhilarating. MIZU is a transoceanic superyacht with extensive exterior areas. She technically has two sundecks. The lower deck boasts an open-air basketball hoop and cushioned seating flanked by two massive davits.

The fourth level sundeck hosts a 16-person hot tub, bar, air conditioned day head, outdoor shower, viewing platform, and plenty of sun loungers. Don’t dream about it, be about it — MIZU is for sale and located in Miami, Florida.


EXCELLENCE | 150’ Richmond 2010

EXCELLENCE has an excellent (we had to) sundeck with enough seating areas to comfortably host 12+ guests. The top deck is broken down into 4 different sections. Forward is a centerline Jacuzzi surrounded by sun pads. Aft of the hot tub is al fresco dining, an ideal spot for breakfast or lunch.

Centerline is a full-service bar with a flat-screen TV and a day head. And all the way aft is a multi-purpose space that you could fill with sun loungers, toys, gym equipment, or touch-and-go helicopter operations.


CHESELLA | 124’ Amels 1983

With four massive decks, CHESELLA goes all out with her sundeck. We’re talkin’ Jacuzzi, sun pads, and outdoor bar. The enormous cushioned lounge area aft is the most attractive spot with enough pillows to make a two-story fort.

The bar area amidship features four stools and is the perfect area to gather around for a party. But when it’s time to flick the switch into sunset relaxation mode, you’ll find us in the hot tub forward. CHESELLA has one of the best sundeck setups.


SWEET EMOCEAN | 116’ Azimut 2009

Yacht charters know how to upgrade a sundeck for guests. SWEET EMOCEAN is a luxury yacht charter with a sundeck made for relaxation. A Jacuzzi, sun pads, dining table, and bar boast a shaded option with a retractable roof for those sunny Caribbean days.

A talented chef will set you up with a menu that includes conch fritters with a chili mayonnaise dip and skirt steak with chimichurri sauce for lunch on the water. Relax and unwind on the sundeck at any time of day — but we’re thinking sunset cocktails in a hot tub sounds pretty darn good.


105′ Numarine 2022

The Numarine Explorer series has proven to be extremely popular in the U.S. Denison yacht broker Alex Clarke sold a 32XP and a 37XP as Numarine produces some of the best value and most capable yachts on the market. The Numarine 32XP has a sundeck worth telling you about.

A bar is built into the aft-facing hot tub, providing a convenient place to set your drink down or nibble on snacks. The sunbed can fit 3 people and offers an adjustable backrest for your comfort. An 8-person dinette, wet bar, and grill are shaded by a hardtop and an ideal setup for hosting guests. The 2022 Numarine 32XP Hull #5 is available with a 16 month delivery period.


The flybridge sundeck is a popular spot onboard most superyachts. It’s the perfect area to host a party, soak up the sun, or enjoy al fresco dining. While some sundecks are better than others, if it’s an important feature, let your yacht broker know. They can set you up with an impressive yacht with an even more impressive sundeck.
